15% of nothing works out at roughly nothing........

Snow in the Ivory Coast, eh? She's got a pooch just like yours, Mike!

It was the snow that made me a bit suspicious, Alan/James... You don't think this is one of those "interweb scrams", do you?
They'll pay money into my bank account if I provide the account number, sort code and all my passwords and pin numbers.
So, its got to be one of those charity things...? Surely....?

Pass it on to the Police who will do nothing and she is most likely him and that is that. I would write a rant about my view of these people but it would be @;%& and the like. Not fitting for such a fine blog.

You can swear on the blog, Martin, as long as its inventive or the suggestions are physically difficult or otherwise intruiging.
Nothing involving disrespect of Kylie is allowed, though.

modalities: The ceremonial forms, protocols, or conditions that surround formal agreements or negotiations

Or...

An anatomically tricky and sometimes painful procedure whereby the offeror is requested to place his wonderfully generous and irresistable offer into a suitably concealed orifice by the offeree. This procedure may include swearing, very often inventive.

Crikey, Tykelad. I trust that the scammer (and I use the word "trust" ironically as a kind of pun or jape) is using the first definition. I wouldn't want to get involved in anything insertive with this lass. Not with all that snow around, anyway.
